Gangjee, Chopra make cut in Nationwide tourney

Omaha, USA: Indian golfer Rahil Gangjee overcame a shaky start to card a two-under 69 and make the halfway cut at tied 37th in the Nationwide Tour`s Cox Classic.

The Kolkata golfer, playing in his rookie year, shot a second round of two-under 69 and made the weekend rounds at a total of seven-under 135.

Indian-origin Swede golfer Daniel Chopra also made the cut after carding a 67 to go with his first round 68 and he was also tied 37th.

Chopra had an eventful day with six birdies, an eagle on the 10th and two bogeys and a triple bogey on the par-four seventh.

Gangjee had bogeys on the second and fourth with a birdie in between. Birdies on the fifth and sixth steadied the Indian, who then added another birdie on 10th.

A bogey on the 14th was followed by a birdie on 15th for a card of 69 on a day when he struggled with his driving.

Ken Duke shot a bogey-free eight-under 63 and moved into a share of the lead with Russell Knox (65).

Seven players, including Matthew Goggin -- the Money leader on Nationwide Tour, were tied third at 12-under 130 and the group includes JJ Killeen (64), winner of last week`s Utah Championship.
